Alexander McQueen was a pioneer in the fashion industry, and will be missed very much. As a brand that appreciates bold prints and colors, we’re very sorry at Free People Brooklyn about this tragic news. Here’s a look at some of our favorite pieces designed by his genius.

In the same spirit of the last post, a brand new fashion Co-Op called “Better than Jam” has just opened on Flushing Avenue in the Loom! I just went to check it out this Saturday and the collection is amazing. Each designer there has their own distinct style that is totally recognizable. All the products are designed by NYC designers and made here! Take a look at some of my favorite things that I saw:

Jason Estrin is one of Brooklyn’s very own comic book illustrators. We love his work! Check out this four- page illustration he posted on his blog a couple of months ago called THE HOUSE OF RESPECTED NAMES.

It’s been up for almost a month… and I haven’t seen many posts about it on the internet, but “Who Shot Rock and Roll” now being exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art looks awesome and I know I’m going to go see it. The Museum claims that it’s goal with this exhibit is to “acknowledge the photographer’s creative and collaborative role in history of rock music.” Sounds pretty sweet to me. Check out some photos being shown at the exhibit:
